The problem is cause due to one of the following: the backlight or the display, check your monitor brightness settings. Sometimes your brightness may accidentally have been all the way turned down, resulting in a blank/dark screen. The monitor controls are on the keyboard, directly above the numeric keys.
Look closely at your laptop's screen if the steps do not restore power to it and if it remains blank. Can you see a faint image on the screen? If so, the backlight may be off due to the LCD "lid close" detector malfunctioning. This malfunction likely happened due to the lid close switch being stuck in the "closed" position even though the lid is open. The switch is located beside the LCD's screen hinges, and tapping the switch a few times should unstick it.
Use an S-Video cable and plug your laptop up to an external monitor, such as your television set. With the laptop and TV hooked up, turn both on and see if your computer's desktop is displayed on the TV. You can also use a fifteen ( 15 )pin monitor desktop monitor by connecting it to the blue fifteen ( 15 ) connector at the side of the laptop if you cannot see anything on screen it is the display problem. If it is, your laptop's display needs to be replaced. If not, your motherboard and/or video subsystem may need to be completely removed and replaced.

Toshiba Tecra A7 Won't Turn On


You may trying pulling the battery out while its unplugged. Another issue may be the socket where the AC adapter plugs into the laptop. Is it loose, broken prong inside the socket. It should have been able to power up at least for a brief moment just on the battery. Hope this helps ya.

My toshiba cannot boot my CD-Rom, what am I supposed to do? Windows could not appear. It just blank. And my hard disk was formatted, the only message was NTDLR press CTLR+ALT+DEL to restart......... Please...


Sounds like a bad optical drive. Good thing is: this thing uses a SelectBay removeable drive and it's a one touch remove type. Same as the ones used in the more popular Tecra 9000, Tecra 9100 series. I'd replace it. Best source is eBay. Price target? Under $15 delivered.

I have a toshiba tecra m2 when i power on it will display the logo for a sec then go blank i can see that the backlight is lit i tryed powering on again and as soon as i see the logo i pres f2 and it stays...


Dear anthonylopes,
Is this toshiba tecra m2 new? try to send them back to the store you bought from and ask for another new replacement concerning the full guarantee from toshiba! If it's not, try to run the bootable CD (Windows XP as an example) then, if you don't see the dialog or message from Instalation CD, I convince that the problem might be with your inverter!
GoodLuck!

Best Regards,

You may have faulty RAM.
Try reseating the RAM modules first. If this doesn't work remove the RAM modules and ask your friendly computer shop to test them for you.

Toshiba Tecra M2 Series


Was the laptop on when it turned off? It may be a PSU problem but we can determine this by removing the battery. Make sure you disconnect the AC adapter while your removing the battery. Inspect the contacts and make sure`there are no black marks or any other dirt. Leave the battery out and plug in your AC adapter. Try the power again. 
There are a couple of possibilities in terms of problems that I can suspect so far. Did anything out of the ordinary happen when the computer just stopped working all of the sudden.
1. Battery has failed and short circuited the contacts 2. Power supply failure 3. Motherboard could have failed in style. 4. Power contacts for the AC adapter are damaged.
